There cant be much question about tomorrows entertainment choices. We will be there, and so should you!

Copenhagen: Patchanka CD Release Party and New Merch

Our good friends from Patchanka will be celebrating the release party for their upcoming album, „Normalize This,“ this Friday at „Global“ in Copenhagen. Not only did we not want to miss the party, which will also include several DJs and surprise special guests on stage, but we have also done our part to make the evening even a little more special.

So once again, as was recently the case with Konecho, designed by „Corte“ and Powered by Fire and Flames, we present to you the new Patchanka designs…

„Music for Mind and Soul“


(Also available in gold, as a hoodie, in „girls cut“ black and „girls cut“ gold)

Stars

(Also available as so called „girls cut“)

Finally, small yet cute…

The shirts actually arrived in Copenhagen before we did, and clearly the excitement amongst some of the band members and their friends was big, as the following picture documents…

We leave you with some sounds. Not new, still good.

PS Weve had the pleasure of hearing some songs off the new album yesterday, and its excellent. A little teaser…

The Great (neverending) Catalogue Update Part 10: Banda Bassotti, Non Servium, Redska, United Struggle…

Nothing brings out the authoritarian opi in me like the German volksmob going wild in the streets.

Its late, Im tired, hungry, and in a hurry to get home. Unfortunately, a gang of black/red/yellow flag waving monkeys has decided to step out of their cars and have some sort of epileptic seizure in the middle of the street. The idea of getting out of the car, telling them to fuck off out of the way, and possibly while at it serve myself to a flag is quickly discarded because…well, its like 50 of them against 1 of me. Confrontation discarded, all I can think of is: where is the police? Why is there not a horde of cops imposing law and order through brutal violence so that the good citizens of Goettingen can get to their homes in peace?!

Anyways…the great catalogue update shows no mercy and will apparently never end. The next round….some music with which to hopefully drown out the drunken, nationalist party hordes outside, is outlined below. Otherwise you can just head directly to the music section of our website…

*As was the case last month with their LPs, we have now finally re-stocked most of the entire back catalogue of Banda Bassotti releases on CD! So, for those of you who still understand music as something existing outside of the realm of the purely digital, here you go…



(Vecci Cani Bastardi is of course also available on LP, released by us :-) )

(Btw…if you are wondering why the LPs suddenly became more expensive…the first batch we were able to get through trade, unfortunately the second batch we had to buy. So it was either for a few Euros more, or taking them off the site. We thought this was better than nothing).

*Also classic, much loved and hence for the last few months no longer available…Non Servium CDs. Long story short…all three Non Servium releases are again in stock!

*Finally, in the new release category, Redskas latest production in LP format, and the latest release from Duesseldorfs finest United Struggle:

Rostock: Riot in My Heart!


Via Kombinat Fortschritt

Your faithful (and painfully overworked) author was not actually personally there (he was in Paris…reading books and eating falafel), but from what the Fire and Flames crew which was indeed there tell us…the festival was incredible, and a huge success. A great atmosphere, a clear antifascist and radical message in a place which very much needs it, serious and responsible organizers, good bands. All in all, just what we expect from a political festival and generally a great event. Hopefully this was just the first of many „Riot in My Heart“ festivals!

Our thanks to the organizers for letting us be a, small, part of the event with our table and the support we were fortunate enough to be able to offer with the promotion in the run up to the event.

In case you missed it and want to see what you missed, or if you were there and want to swim in the nostalgia, some videos, pictures, and interviews. We begin with the interview, which makes clear the mindset and objectives of the organizers…

You can then read a post festival interview, and see some further pictures, here.

This Weekend: Anarchist Bookfair Paris and Riot in My Heart Festival Rostock

Fire and Flames will be attending the anarchist bookfair in Paris this weekend (and Stockholm June 16th). We will be there, and so should you!

Meanwhile, while some of us will be in Paris, speaking French, hording books, and gorging ourselves on Argentine food, another, more punk rock oriented Fire and Flames team will find themselves in Northern Germany, Rostock to be more precise, tabling at the „Riot in My Heart“ festival which we are proud supporters of…

Finally, somewhat closer to „home“, we suggest this fine concert…

Back to the subject of bookfairs, here is a first notice regarding the one in Stockholm…

As if this wasnt enough to get you up North, then…
